First off we apologize for taking two days off from the EIU blog but we are back. Sitting around watching the reality shows on TV the last couple of nights it made me think is there really any better reality than athletics.
EIU women's soccer picked up a tie with Western Illinois as the Panthers prep for Ohio Valley Conference action which starts this weekend.
Volleyball continued its solid start to the season with a Monday night win over WIU. EIU will play at home on Friday night against Morehead State to open OVC action.
This weekend also marks the EI Club Hall of Fame induction which will include former soccer star Beth Liesen and former volleyball star Erica Gerth. Additional inductees will be Willie White and Kevin Staple from football, Kelly Waldrup from softball/women's basketball and friend of atheltics Jerry Myerscough.
Congrats to EIU men's goalkeeper Sean Molony who was named the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week while Olivia Klaus was named the OVC Female Runner of the Week.
